Voting for participatory budgeting is coming up this weekend and the following weekend, offering you a chance to decide on what projects get funding.
We have sample ballots available for you to look at the list of projects and think about your favorites, with English sample ballots as well as ballots in Spanish. Projects include plans to install security cameras, improve parks, playgrounds, and basketball courts, and new technology for schools and libraries, among other projects proposed by community members. These plans were then developed by committees over the last few months, and now you can choose which to fund.
You can vote at any of these locations, as well as a few mobile locations which will be confirmed closer to the date.
